Considering What’s Important in a Vacuum Furnace

June 23, 2014

A vacuum furnace can heat metals to very high temperatures with minimal contamination problems precisely because the heating takes place in a vacuum. That lack of oxygen makes heating metal almost easy.

Vacuum furnace benefits

The benefits of a vacuum furnace include:

  • Uniform high temperatures
  • Precise temperature control
  • Low contamination from carbon, oxygen and other gasses
  • Quick quenching or cooling of the product
  • Computer controlled to ensure repeatable performance

Experience counts in vacuum furnaces

Our reputation high quality and attention to details means when we build a vacuum furnace for you, you know it’s going to be right. We’ve been manufacturing in metal since 1935, which gives us plenty of valuable experience to draw from.

We are ISO 9001:2015 certified and can supply certifications including Canadian CRN registration. European CE / PED certification is also available upon request. We can provide Finite Element Analysis (FEA) for furnace designs that don’t fall under standard ASME code rules.

We make full use of computer aided design, including COMPRESS for all vacuum chamber design. Fabrication drawings are then created in SolidWorks and AutoCAD.

Vacuum furnace features

Every one of our vacuum furnaces includes the following:

  • ASME Code or non-code Vacuum Chambers
  • Carbon Steel or 300 Series Stainless Steel
  • Round, Square or Rectangular Nozzles
  • Jacketed Chambers
  • Full Testing and Inspection

We have an outstanding reputation for partnering with our clients, from concept through product delivery. Our engineers and production staff take pride in delivering the best possible vacuum furnaces from our thoroughly modern facility that offers both excellent design space and cutting edge manufacturing.

Give us a call. We think you’ll be glad you did.
